A Little About This Space

Manchester’s answer to Shoreditch’s massively successful Boxpark has arrived. The shipping container pop-up mall, Hatch, has just opened on Oxford Road near the UK’s biggest single-site university campus. Located under the Mancunian Way flyover, this retail space for rent faces the city's busiest main road.


With the University of Manchester and Manchester Metropolitan University nearby, Oxford Road sees plenty of students throughout the day. And even after the lecture halls and libraries have closed, the area’s famed bars – like The Deaf Institute and The Dancehouse – keep this stretch busy until late. On occasion, tourists are tempted by the area's art galleries, theatres and the super luxe Principal Manchester hotel.


Hatch is home to Takk’s new artisan espresso bar, as well as their nano brewery and keg bar called Öl – a joint venture with local brewers Byrne the Cake. Mexican street food slingers El Marchador, have a place in the courtyard, and The New York Times-recommended Principal Manchester hotel is down the road, near the station.

Home Truths

Hatch sits under the Mancunian Way flyover so there'll be a lack of natural light in the space, but the unit is well-lit.
